This unique international glossary provides an authoritative guide to some 200 technical terms used in contemporary scholarly research on poverty. Each entry contains definitions and explanations, followed by a select reading list of relevant journal articles and books. The Glossary has been compiled by scholars from a number of countries and international agencies with the intention of sensitising researchers, students and policy makers working in a variety of disciplines to the complexities of the issues relating to the subject of poverty. In particular, the Glossary will help overcome the current difficulties arising from the absence of an agreed vocabulary, as well as the unfamiliarity of terms and concepts in one relevant discipline to those operating in others. The multidimensional character of poverty becomes clear and a special effort has been made to include non-Western approaches and concepts with a view to facilitating comparative poverty studies.
